Work issues abound. Mason is expanding his company and has perhaps borrowed a little bit recklessly - increasing his staff levels and cost base, before embarking on a lucrative security contract. He won't see any payment from the contract for a little way down the line. In the short term he's in a bit of a hole.
An incident with one of his new recruits on his big job puts immediate pressure on the business. His wife is heavily pregnant - a further worry. His financiers suddenly start playing hard ball. A former soldier from his past puts in a reappearance. His calm and control seems to be deserting him and doubts creep in about his right hand man. Just because you're a bit paranoid, it doesn't mean someone isn't out to get you.
And rest assured someone is out to get him.
Industrial sabotage, blackmail, threats to livelihood, threats to family ........ and a fightback with best friend, Sterling appearing on the scene.
Fast-paced and enjoyable without being the best book ever. I like the main characters and the way they bounce off each other. We get some of their shared history in a flashback to their service days. I quite liked the set-up and development of the plot. There's an inevitability about the outcome, insofar as you expect the duo to come out on top and that balance will be restored to their world and without spoilers that does happen, but it's an entertaining outing getting to that point.
I look forward to seeing this pair again in Brotherhood - the author's first full length novel.

Both punch hard from the start, taking the reader along at a cracking pace. 'Forged in Flames' introduces us to Adam Sterling while 'The Money Trap' is based on Byron Mason and the bond between the two men, begun as fellow soldiers. Both have serious difficulties to overcome - journeys that take them through adrenalin-loaded, visceral and violent action. I was drawn in straight away and involved all the way through. Excellently plotted, with closely-drawn characters, they are far more than the usual thriller. Each book balances - on the one hand - desperate fighting with solving who is behind the dangerous situations and why - on the other hand - emotional involvements, romantic entanglements, and issues of trust and justice. All this plus the work of the police alongside Adam's perilous firefighting and Byron's business problems. Totally gripping and finally satisfying reads. I can't wait for the new series.
